Whether it involves working on a blog entry or developing a book or article idea, I am always looking for fresh ways to connect theology with every day life.

Embracing Scrutiny

Read Krista's thoughts about the importance of questioning your religious presuppositions.

Exposing one’s worldview assumptions to the light of day can be distressing.
